Cold Peanut Sesame Chicken & Spiralized Cucumber

This salad is fresh, healthy and packs a to of flavor. I love PB2 (you can get it on Amazon), it seems strange, but packs a lot of flavor and is great for peanut flavored dressings. The trick when dressing anything is do it in a large bowl – drizzle lightly and toss to coat – you can always add more dressing, but you really don’t need a lot.

Peanut Dressing

  • 1/4 c powdered peanut butter (PB2) or peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • 1 tbsp sriracha
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger

Salad

  • 2 english cucumbers
  • 8 oz cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1 c bell pepper, diced
  • 4 scallions, sliced thin
  • Toasted sesame seeds

Combine dressing ingredients in a small jar, shake to combine.

Spiralize the cucumber into 5 inch long noodles (or cut into small cubes).

Combine cucumber, peppers and scallions in a bowl, dress with salad dressing and toss to combine. Divide among plates. Add chicken to the same bowl, drizzle with dressing and toss to coat. Divide among plates. Sprinkle with a little sesame seed and a drizzle of hot sauce.

Serves 4.
